The Massachusetts Alliance for DCF-Impacted LGBTQ Youth is a statewide network of advocates, youth, and allies working to address the state of emergency facing LGBTQ youth involved with the Massachusetts child welfare system.

Alliance members keep each other informed about policies, research, legislation, and issues arising from lived experience and the field. We work together to provide information, organization, and advocacy for changes needed to best support DCF-impacted LGBTQ youth.
